Energy Saving Solutions in Buildings using Phase Change Materials (PCM)

In HMCS Laboratory, the effect of integration of Phase Change Materials (PCMs) in building materials is studied, with a view to saving energy in buildings.

PCM integration in:

  • Building Elements
  • HVAC systems
  • Underfloor heating

Experimental Investigation

  • Measurements of the variation of thermal properties of building materials (eg marble) after incorporating PCMs
  • Temperature measurement: infrared thermal camera
  • Underfloor heating
